Fast and spectrally accurate summation of 2-periodic Stokes potentials
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
We derive a Ewald decomposition for the Stokeslet in planar periodicity and a novel PME-type O(N log N) method for the fast evaluation of the resulting sums. The decomposition is the natural 2P counterpart to the classical 3P decomposition by Hasimoto, and is given in an explicit form not found in the literature. Truncation error estimates are provided to aid in selecting parameters. The fast, PME-type, method appears to be the first fast method for computing Stokeslet Ewald sums in planar periodicity, and has three attractive properties: it is spectrally accurate; it uses the minimal amount of memory that a gridded Ewald method can use; and provides clarity regarding numerical errors and how to choose parameters. Analytical and numerical results are give to support this. We explore the practicalities of the proposed method, and survey the computational issues involved in applying it to 2-periodic boundary integral Stokes problems.
